The Drive Continues . . . .


Last night (Day Four) we arrived in Spokane, WA around 4:30 Pacific Daylight Time (our new time zone - Yay!) 2,616 miles into the 3,029 miles.





We took it a bit slower on Friday, as the scenery going through Montana and Idaho is especially beautiful. This was the first time either of us had driven through the area, and we enjoyed the views immensely. Even the Four Footed Child seemed to take in the sights when she wasn't vocally protecting us from cattle and horses near the highway.

Today will be a leisurely drive through Washington and spending the night in Bellingham, WA prior to the border crossing tomorrow. I know, I know, we could go ahead and do the crossing today. We decided to go through Canadian customs early Sunday morning to avoid the weekend traffic crowds and this way will get us to The West End early on a Sunday, also. Unfortunately, there is a Triathlon going on that day in our 'hood so the actual final destination logistics are a bit more challenging than normal. Towing a trailer through our 'hood at any time is difficult, so this should prove interesting.

Our next post will be from our Canadian home .

Gotta like the sound of that . . . .

How absolutely exciting!!!!!! The border at Blaine on a Sunday morning should be very easy. Don't miss the truck turnoff (to the right) and go to Peace Arch!!
